, he is, he and joe biden, those only two offices everybody votes for. and he has won. he got over 50%. so he will make his case. i think what is different, what is significantly different, there will be confrontation but i think the first time you're seeing the president move hess campaign organization, we just saw this in the last few days, move it into advocacy on the issues for his agenda during the second term. that's unprecedented. no president's ever been able it do that. and this time it is not with some rinky-dink campaign organization that we've seen in the past. this is the biggest campaign organization ever seen in the united states. 28, 30 million people. those people making the case to their members of congress regardless of party, whether the member is democrat or republican. i think could change the way we look at a lame duck second term presidency because of the power of that grassroots organization. bill: wow! that's a big statement, joe. back to the initial question though. >> sure. bill: blount make as heavy charge though. are there democrats in congress who agree
president joe biden. we're all part of this. they were shouting we're in this together and we're going to act together and we're going to try to open dialogue with those who would be our enemies abroad. we're not looking for another war this time and under this president we're looking for a way to avoid one. because these wars as we've all learned the hard way are a lot easier to start than to finish. let's start with this astounding presidential embrace of the ongoing american revolution from lexington and concord to seneca falls, selma, and stonewall. sam stein covers politics for "the huffington post," and stephanie schriock is president of emily's list. let's start with the message of inclusion and community in the president's address yesterday. many have noticed his preference for three iconic places with historic significance in the fight for american rights. let me run through them. first, seneca falls, new york, where in 1848 elizabeth cady stanton and others led a historic convention dedicated to women's rights which later led to a women's right to vote, of course. selma, alab

's the real problem. i thought it was interesting. vice president biden said he was not concerned about getting guns out of the hands of minute people. well, i'm the same way. i don't think we should take away from good people, law-abiding people, the right to own firearms. , and what we ought to focus on is where the real problem is. you look at some of the plays that have strict gun control. washington d.c. had the strongest gun control law in the country. ofsh the highest murder rate. they understand the issue is the people that pull the triggers on those guns ask trying to keep guns away from them. that's what we ought to be focused on, and the mentally ill part i do consider a productive step that hopefully something will come of. >> haley barbour, thank you very much, governor. thanks for joining us today. appreciate it. >>> coming up next, carolyn mccarthy, a gun violence victim, and one of the strongest advocates on capitol hill as joe biden takes the road on gun violence. and it's the best as i understandoff. tim geithner could have asked for. the market reactions to ed. this i
the pressure on to make sure that we do get a vote. >> i want to play something that vice president joe biden said at this conference. take a listen. >> they come from a small percentage of the gun crimes in america. more people out there get shot with a glock that has cartridges that you can have magazines that have two, ten, 12, 15, 30 shells in it than from any assault weapon you see. >> it sounds like vice president biden's backing away from the ban on assault rifles. is there a chance that that measure was offered up as a political sacrificial lamb of sorts? is there a chance that a lot of folks knew they had no way of getting that through and they offered it up to be able to say, you know what? we didn't get everything that we wanted. well, i don't think the vice president is backing away at all from his support of the assault weapons ban, but there are three components and i applaud the president for wanting to pass some kind of comprehensive bill, but the main three components that we'd most like to see is the assault weapons ban and the elimination of the multi-round gun clips that h

in the senate. that brings us to joe biden. you might consider him the president's ambassador to capitol hill. at the start of the second term, the president is counting more than ever on biden, who quite simply has better and deeper relationships with members of congress than the president himself. he's, frankly, more well liked on capital hill. >> obama! >> thank you so much. >> reporter: and most important it will for t for the president, the people who were there watching his speech. the people that helped him get elected president twice. those are the people that he is trying to now transform from a re-election campaign to a grassroots army to help him pressure congress, build public support to support his agenda. and it's support that you can, believe me, he is going to need, because right now, the president faces an uphill battle on every single one of those top priorities. if he's going to get any of that passed, he needs to pressure members of congress who, right now, including some in his own party, simply are not inclined to support him. so, the president is going to mobilize, he's
? >> sure. >> okay. just wanted to make sure i heard you right. let's talk about hillary clinton, joe biden and the president of the united states. here's a clip from the "60 minutes" interview. >> you guys, in it the press, are incorageable. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. >> right. >> and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> i am, as you know, i am still secretary of state, so i'm out of politics, and i'm forbidden even from hearing these questions. i think that, you know, look, obviously, the president and i care deeply about what's going to happen for our country in the future. and i don't think, you know, either he or i can make predictions about what's going to happen tomorrow or for the next year. >> hilary, who do you think he would prefer to succeed him, biden or hillary clinton? >> sofie's choice, wolf. two of his favorites. i think the president is hoping he is not going to have to choose between the the two. they'll work it out among themselves. because he has very deep affection for both joe biden and hillary clinton. and, you know, my guess is that
with a question that everybody in washington's asking. are the democrats going to be putting up joe biden for president in 2016? here's how the vice president answered that question when asked yesterday. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> oh, there's a whole lot of reasons why i wouldn't run. i haven't made that decision. and i don't have to make that decision for a while. >> so are you ready to run against hillary clinton in 2016? >> i haven't made that judgment, and hillary hasn't made that judgment, but i can tell you what. everything that should be done over the next two years that i should be part of would have to be done whether i run or i don't run. if this administration is successful, whoever is running as a democrat's better positioned to win. if we're not successful, whoever runs as the nominee is going to be less likely to win. >> you know, mike allen, there are a few reasons why joe biden might not run. one of them that i can think of right off the top of my head is if a meteor crashes into the naval observatory, a la armageddon style, perhaps he wouldn't run. but we
's official residence, joe biden was sworn into office for a second term. doing the honors there, justice sonia sotomayor making her the first la that knee to administer an oath to a president or vice president. at this hour across the nation's capital, parties and events kicking off, including the red, white, and blue ball, the hip-hop ball and the let freedom ring concert and what i call behind us the erin burnett ball. >> the jonk kihn king ball. we have people out having a good time including the things that come with this, including the media. a lot of us are wondering what the president is going to say in his inaugural speech. obviously, so much is weighing on it. if anything, even more important than the first time around because he has, as john has pointed out, a small window to make a big difference for whatever legacy he wants to leave. so, don, what do you know -- dan, about this speech. is it done? >> we're toll the president putting sort of the last points on that speech and will be making some tweaks before he actually rolls it out tomorrow. we're told by advisers here at th
to get it all. the whole biden proposal. i hope the nra will realize that the american people want to see something done and it is not affecting the second amendment. they say a well-regulated militia. >> i was thinking about the gun debate alone -- [ applause ] that's a perfect example of how things have gone a wry. when he talks about second amendment and people can still own guns and protect themselves in their homes with a wide array of legal weapons, both hand guns and long rifles and shotguns as well. we are talking about a specific kind of weapon a military assault weapon. when the general lived his with those in his hands came out on "morning joe" and said they have noplace, they are designed to do one thing. kill people. the blogger went after him and said i have to have one of these when the government comes to knock down my door. >> the problem is that this whole mentality that the government is coming after us, it is true that the second amendment was written to protect the people from the government, but the reality is the government is not coming after
the announcement? >> he has jack lew. he has joe biden to send up for the all-important relationships on capitol hill. i think this was a legacy pick. the president now has as we know an ambitious agenda that he laid out in the inaugural address. the question is, who is going to protect those goals from him? it's someone he has been with ever since his federal public life has started. that's mcdonough. this is somebody he trusts to protect not just himself. not just the staff, but to move that legacy and the obama era sooner or later will come to an end. the president clearly wants to make the major shape now. i think that's why he picked this man he trusts and has known for so long. >> john kerry ends before the senate foreign relations committee and he will be confirmed. i don't think there is any doubt about that. chuck hagel, that could be a little bit more. >> i think they will rough him up and be more lively than the john kerry hearings. in the end, the numbers. once senator schumer democrat said he answered all my questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been criti

inaugural gifts to president obama and vice president biden had a charming picture. debt ceiling, gun control on the agenda, the second term honeymoon is likely to end quickly. the president struck assertive tone in the inaugural address. >> we cannot substitute speck taggal for politics, or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> the republicans in congress have been defined by the actions. that is why the polling numbers are poor. >> in an interview with the "washington post," white house communication director dan pfeiffer suggested mr. obama is worthy of the task, but republicans are not. "there is a moment of opportunity now that is important. what is frustrating is that we don't have a political system. or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity. pfeiffer told fox it was a message to the country, not just republican parties. but a key senator sounded troubled by a tone heading to a new term with the nation facing serious issues requiring leadership. >> both parties need to work together to solve big proble problems. the democrats need help from the president to lay out t
